CADIZ, Ky. (AP) -- Two people from North Carolina were killed when their tractor-trailer ran off the road and into a stand of trees on Interstate 24 near Cadiz in western Kentucky.
Kentucky State Police say they are unsure whether 34-year-old Joseph A. Robinson of Wendell, N.C., or 55-year-old Larry D. Artis of Wilson, N.C. was driving the truck, when it ran off the road at about 10:14 p.m. CDT Sunday.
Trooper Jay Thomas says investigators aren't sure if the men were wearing seatbelts.
Kentucky State Police say debris from the crash spread along a wide area.
Kentucky Transportation Cabinet spokesman Keith Todd said westbound lanes were expected to be restricted through most of Monday morning at the crash site near mile marker 61.
